Norma Jo Scott (plaintiff) had surgery to remove tumors from her uterus. Thereafter, it was discovered that the surgery had caused a condition which allowed urine to leak from her bladder to her vagina. After three subsequent surgeries, the problem was fixed. Scott brought suit for medical malpractice against the surgeon, Bradford (defendant), claiming that if she had been properly informed of the surgery’s risks and possible alternatives, she would not have chosen surgery. The trial court gave the jury broad instructions regarding a surgeon’s duty to disclose such information, including that Bradford had a duty to disclose material risks of the surgery and feasible alternatives. The jury found that Bradford had adequately informed Scott. Scott appealed.
